From India: The 'Sex Factor'

On a visit to Kolkata, India, to volunteer with Empower the Children, I saw this sign. What they - -the Student Welfare Society - call 'the sex factor' involves "matters of human life" such as "education, work, mentality, beautiness (sic), job, attitude, welth (sic), attitude, love, tenasity (sic), personality development, etc." Yes,  to give women rights equal to men we need to address issues surrounding individual self-esteem, emotions and personal strength, too long suppressed by patriarchy, along with education and work.
